FBO chain Castle & Cooke Aviation has signed a 30-year lease at Van Nuys Airport in southern California with Los Angeles World Airports, which confers full-service FBO status to the company. Castle & Cooke has offered hangar space at Van Nuys for 30 years, and has had its own fuel farm, but until the recent agreement wasn’t allowed to sell fuel to transient customers. The agreement also calls for Castle & Cooke to build a 50,000-sq-ft hangar and office complex and a 75,000-sq-ft concrete ramp. “I have wanted a first-class FBO at Van Nuys for more than 30 years, so I finally decided to build one myself,” said David Murdock, CEO and owner of Castle & Cooke Aviation and also chairman of Dole Food.
